  • Re: Chronic Car Buyers Anonymous

    Stick, what investment does your daughter have in the process? If she isn't paying for any of it (insurance?), why expect her to be involved in anything other than the fun part? And the fun is getting old at this point. That's just human nature. If you told her that paying X more dollars than the Camry meant that much less for other things she might want, that might change things a little. Or not. You are weighing the pros and cons but I wouldn't expect her to be that interested until you actually produce a car. So enjoy the hunt on your own.
    And.. after that, he can start picking out all of her clothes.. ;)
  • Re: Chronic Car Buyers Anonymous

    man, the women in my family. Can't please them. sprung the plan du jour on the princess. Apparently she was all psyched for a 6. But will probably come around to getting the Sonata after all. Not that she trusts me at this point, since the plan seems to change day to day (well, I guess that is accurate). At this point, she has removed herself from the process, and will take whatever I give her the keys to!

    Wife just got tired of hearing from her, and would just go buy another car to be done with it, money be damned.
    Maybe a Prius will shut her up? ;)

    Really... for $1800/mo., you could finance it for 60 months, with no money down..
  • Re: Lexus RX350 - How to tell if it is AWD

    Just bought an RX350 from a dealer. Was advertised as being the cold weather package - all wheel drive, tow package, all weather tires. My wife things we got frauded and were given a FWD. I called Lexus directly and gave them the VIN. They said it is a 4x4 which could be an AWD but that the transmission is slightly different. That made no sense to me. I called another dealer who said to read them the VIN.

    VIN begins as 2T2B.
    He said the first number 2 means made in canada, the next letter signifies toyota, the fourth letter he said B means AWD. Had it been FWD it would have been Z.

    Can anyone tell me how I can tell for sure?
    It's just like a dog... pull up it's tail and look underneath..
